GREENSPAN GOT RUN OVER BY A REINDEER
GREENSPAN GOT RUN OVER BY A BLACK REINDEER
(Grandma/Osama Got Run Over by a Reindeer)
Greenspan got run over by a black reindeer
Walking home from a CITI ATM Christmas eve
You can say there's no such thing as negative Alpha
As for the Wall Street banks and hedge funds they believe
He'd been drinking too much free market egg nog
So its best he had to go
But he wrote a book full of financial flim flam
Defiant as he was, he said financial WMDs, "Hell, no!"
When we found him Christmas morning
At the scene of the attack
There was a note stuck to his forehead
It said, "Give us all our bail out dollars back!"
Now we're all so proud of Bush and Hank Paulsen
They've been taking this so well
See them in the Oval office
Knowing that global markets have really gone to Hell
It's not Christmas without Greenspan
No free toasters and synthetic asset backeds
And we just can't help but wonder
Can we go bomb Osama Bin Laden with CDSs in a sneak attack?
Now a Detroit bailout's on the table
See Rick Wagoneer dance a jig (Ah!)
And the silver and blue Humvees
That would have matched the hairs in Greenspan's wig
You should warn all your friends and neighbors
Better watch out for yourselves!
They should not be marketing SUVs and mortgage backed securiities
Made of stuff you can't even insure at AIG!
